Although the mercury continues
to hover in the neighborhood of about
thirty degrees below zero there is
onne association here, which is
growing by leaps and bounds,
and that !b the Aberdeen Walking
Cluib. Each night at about 9 o'clock
the members meet at some poiht on
Main street and start out for a few
hours' jaunt. A few nights ago they
wended their way to the Curtiss
farm a few miles west, of town/and
after partaking of refreshments,again
retraced their steps to thiB city. Up
on first thought such proceedings
would seem to most of us an entirely
too strenuous pleasure, but the mem
bers of the club, who are in a posi
tion to know, state that the practice
is not only conducive to health but
is fraught with great sport for the
pedestrians of which the club is
composed. Already there about thir
ty members and the prospects are
glowing. In speaking of the benefits
derived from the walking club, Pres
ident Lauermann expressively stated
some facts as follows, "It doesn't
cost a cent to join and if'you are
not fully satisfied, you can get your
moneyt back." The president con
fidently anticipates a membership of
600 in the near future and seemed
almost willing to predict that by ear
ly spring every man, woman and
child of this city would be enrolled
among Its members. So, If late at
night you should hear a mighty rac
ket, do not fsar that the country is
being visited by an earthquake, -or
some such terrible disaster, but know
that that it is the tread of the many
feet of those composing the Aber
deen Walking. Club.
